MY REVIEW

"Question. When I make items like this, I don't have time in the morning, how would you store this? Wrapped in plastic wrap or foil? Would you put the glaze on at night or just before you would serve it? My pastries always come out flaky then the next day they soften. I hate that!"

MY REVIEW

"Easy to make. Delicious. Make sure you chop the apples very finely or grate with grater. The glaze is too heavy. I would half it next time. Warm with a little ice cream ws excellent. I didn't both with the nuts."
